been using the win95 proxy since yesterday....
the proxy seems to work fine *BUT*
IF it timeouts trying to send out to the keyservers it dumps the
completed keys rathering than keeping them buffered for a resend
The bug has been seen by myself and one other running the proxy...
I have lost over 200 completed keys due to this....
the error occurs either on the regular updates or a forced update
just the same.
The author of the windows proxy should be made aware of this
When it timesout the onscreen log indicates such and the keys
waiting for notification drops to zero and the total notification
received does not increment. Also it is to be noted that the online
stats agree that the blocks were not in fact received and have
